    A Rare and Huge Personality Who Will Not Be Forgotten

    My Heart aches. Rabbi Mordechai was a rare כל בו, an individual with a huge personality, an expansive knowledge and deep thinker. When he entered a room the mood and conversation would almost always change to something more substantive and meaningful, colored by his signature demeanor of Chabad, Chassidishe joy and wit. He and his Rebbetzin יבלט”א are the definition of an aristocratic couple. I wish his Rebbetzin יבלט”א and to all the family (a particular mention to my dear cousin, childhood friend Yossi ) that Hashem give you the strength to carry-on. May the רבש”ע brighten your days ahead… Read more »

    Your father has a great Zchus to have a son like you. The love and simche you bring to your Mushpoim especially to the once who are seating under the Iron curtain is all Leilui Nishmas.

    May you continue being a source of inspiration for all of us your Mushpoim and for the many that got to know you.

    After returning from Buffalo Rabbi Zajac opened Maimonides school in Far Rockerway, NY, the first school for disabled children which he ran successfully for 18 years.

    He returned to Brazil in 1977, after the Rebbe told him that his Shlichus will be to be Mekarev those that you can only reach out to as a business associate rather than as their Rabbi.

    Reb Motel,
    A great man, a chosid that koched in the Rebbes shiurim and directives.
    Helped countless organizations and individuals to raise funds. Amongs them R. Shmuel Dovid Raitchik and R. Dovid Raskin A”H.
    May Hashem give streghnth and be Menachem the whole family especialy a devoted son Reb Yosi, who selflesly honored and looked after his father during the years he lived in Brazil, driving him to Shul and home daily and much more.

    I never met Reb Mordechai. I only know his son Reb Yossi Zajac from Montreal. Rabbi Yossi changed my life for ever and ever.

    Reb Yossi – Your father raised a son like you and that is very special. I’m sure your action and all you great Mitzvot that you do will be a great elevation for his soul.

    Good times and memories. An Emesser Chossid

    I had the merit of spending many Shabossim with R Mottel (and Tibodel Lechaim Tobim his wife, Rebetzn Rivka) as a bochur in Brazil. I was the Baal Koire in his shul (together with R Rosenfeld) and a tremendous Taanug of spending long shabbos meals listening to R’ Mottel´s Yejidus´n with the Friediker Rebbe, and with the Rebbe, and chassidishe Maizes fun unzer Rebbeim. And all this with his Charifus and comic style. (those shabbosim after the Davenen and Kiddush, just was me with R’ Mottel for a whole year! (5771). i remember well r’ Mottle then singing the Piyut… Read more »

    We were so, so saddened ( and shocked) to hear of Reb Mottel’s p’tira. May Der Aibershter give you the strength needed to continue. May you all bask in the memories of the good times, as will we. May you be gebenched with much nachas from each other, from the children and the ainiklach. May Reb Mottel use his strength of character, perseverance, and power of persuasion to help bring Moshiach now.
    Eemachem anachnu b’tzoroh. Much love, Tzyotzeh Riveh’s children- the Geisinsky family.
